Reconciled to be Reconcilers

What are Life Groups?

Life groups are small groups that meet on a regular basis in pursuit of authentic Christian community and discipleship.* Groups may be organized on a particular topic, type of identity, experience, season of life, or activity. They can be open to anyone who wants to join or have parameters such as:  gender, age, or a season of  life (marriage, parents, new to Chicago, etc.). Life Groups serve the purpose of coming together to grow deeper in our relationships with God and with one another. 

*A Biblical understanding of authentic Christian community and discipleship includes: 

  • Colossians 3:12-17 New Life in Christ
  • 1 Corinthians 12:12- 27 One Body, Many Members, All with a Unique Purpose
